Christine,

You picked a good tale and have, to my ear, a very pleasant voice in timbre, inflection, modulation, etc. Perhaps it's my age, but you read just a tad to quickly at times, but not that often.
I'm taking the time to write this because I think you are a very good reader. Do check pronunciation on words you are not sure of such as anathema and suave. Because you read so well, one doesn't expect mispronunciations. Again, I'm writing this only because you make listening to a good story very rewarding. There are plenty of readers who destroy potentially good recordings with terrible voices as well as poor pronunciation.
Looking foward to hearing more of your readings.

Subject: I have listened to this book 2x
... and enjoyed it both times.

Mr Grell has been murdered and Inspector Foyle is on the case. Upon arriving at the scene of the crime, Foyle makes a shocking discovery. His attempts to interview the different suspects in the case are thwarted by the dead man's fiance, her fiance's friend and competitor in affection, and the Princess Petrovska. It seems like everyone is trying to cover up the tracks of the guilty party. Foyle's got his hands full...

The reader is excellent, I enjoyed her reading immensely.

This is a very good mystery. I did not figure it out nor should I say guess the truth until just before the end of the story. This mystery is filled with abundant detail of the officers trying to find the truth. The investigations seem to be led in one direction and then another, but it is nicely culminated with a recap at the end. In my opinion this is worth the time to listen.

Ms. Blachford reads well, but sometimes rather fast.
